THE WEST WOODS.

In one of a series of articles contributed in 1869, to the Yates County Chronicle, concerning the " Yates County Gazetteer," Edward J. Fowle, wrote as follows:

" After the earlier settlers of Benton, about 1816, there came a colony from Livingston's Manor, Columbia county, who located in the west part of the town, which for many years was designated as the West or Dutch Woods. They were an honest, frugal and industrious people. The 'Old Folks' are nearly all departed, as are most of the log houses they built. Many of the descendants reside there, possessing the virtues of the parents. They are well-to-do farmers, and good livers. Among them will be found the family names of Crank, Rector, Finger, Wheeler, Simmons, Carrol, Hoos, Moon, Miller and Niver. In the young days of the old people, the winters afforded good times for visiting and social enjoyments. Every week, if not oftener at the log residence of some one of them, the families would all congregate, coming in sleighs or sleds, when there would be music and dancing, story telling, refreshments and smoking, while the huge logs blazed away in the good large fire-places ; and so the evening or night passed away. There was usually one double log house, with only one room below, which had two fire-places, two looms, two beds, and other furniture, and occupied by two families. And those primitive times were happy times with them, with few artificial wants, with no heed to fashions, no class distinctions, no envying nor jealousies, their lives glided along smoothly and pleasantly. Their spiritual wants were supplied occasionally by itinerant Dutch or Methodist minister. They were always kind to one another, at house risings and logging bees, at marriages in sickness and at death and burial. The large and small wheel, the reel and the loom, have nearly disappeared from among them, but agriculture, the dairy, poultry flocks and herds, and general household duties, now claim the attention of both men and women, old and young, conducing to health and competence. They have rarely if ever been engaged in law suits, and never has one of them been before the courts for wrong doing. It would be hard for our friends in high life to frame for themselves a more exalted eulogy."

Notes for WILLIAM RECTOR:

NOTES ON THE RECTOR FAMILY GENEALOGY

by Paul D. Bullock

This story begins in the Electoral Palatinate in Germany in the years before 1709. The Palatinate was and is the area in Germany next to France and Belgium along the Rhine river and is presently called the Rhine-Palatinate or Pfalz. The War of the Palatinate in the late 1600's and the War of the Spanish Succession in the very early 1700's left this area ravaged and desolate. This caused many peasants and common people to be left homeless and destitute. Beginning in 1708, numbers of Palatines went to England in hopes to go on to the colonies. In 1709, thirteen thousand (13,000) families entered England.

According to a list taken in Walworth, England on May 27, 1709, one of these families was the John Andreas Richter family. Listed with John Andreas is his wife, a 14 year old son, and daughters of ages 17, 7, and 3. The list shows John Andreas to be 46 years old, his religion Lutheran, and his vocation husbandman or vinedresser. I have no information on from where in Germany the family came.

In England, the Board of Trade proposed that the Palatines go to the colonies to make naval stores. In 1710, three thousand (3,000) became British citizens and the British officials sent them to New York. The naval stores operation never prospered so most, of those who stayed in the new world, became farmers.

Andreas Richter name appears in Governor Hunter's New York subsistence list from the time of his landing in 1710 to September 1712. The list includes an Andreas Richter and with a family of 3 adults (over 10 years old) and 2 children in 1710. In 1712, a similar list shows 3 adults and no children. The Colonial Census of 1710 includes Andreas (age 47), his wife Anna Maria (45), son Andreas (16), and daughter Anna Barbara (9). So apparently the eldest daughter listed in England married and at least one younger daughter died in New York.

Probably the Richters moved up the Hudson in 1712 to the "West Camp" on the western bank of the river to Beckmansland. Beckmansland consisted of the towns of Elizabeth Town, George Town, and New Town. New Town is probably the present city of Newburgh, N.Y. In the Kocherthau Records, records of Pastor Kocherthau who was with the Palatine settlement, Anna Maria and Andreas were sponsors at the christening of Andreas Sutz on February 21, 1713. Then less than two months later, on April 7, 1713, the Kocherthau Records list the marriage of Johann Fuehrer to Anna Marie Richter widow of the late Andreas Richter of New Town. So Andreas Sr. died sometime in that two month period in 1713.

The Kocherthau Records list the birth of Johannes Richter to Andreas and Elisabeth on September 21, 1714. This birth was probably in New Town since the Simmendinger Register lists Andreas, wife Elisabeth and one child as living there. Ulrich Simmendinger, one of the immigrants, published the Simmendinger Register when he returned to Germany.

Young Andreas moved across the Hudson to Livingston Manor since he, as Andries Rightster, is shown as a Palatine debtor of the four villages of Germantown, Livingston, Clermont, and Claverack on the dates of March 1, 1718; December 26, 1718 and February 1722. His debts may have stemmed from the time he was on the New York subsistence rolls ten years earlier.

The following are miscellaneous items that mention Richters in the Livingston Manor area:

1. Anna Maria is born in 1732 to Andreas (probably Andreas Jr.) and Elisabeth Richter.

2. Anna is born to Hannes (probably Johannes the son of Andreas Jr. mentioned above) and Lisabeth Richter in 1747.

3. Reformed Church membership list of 1750 mentions Andreas (probably Andreas Jr.) Regter, his wife Anna Elisabeth Stael, and children Maria Elisabeth and Catharina.

4. The Livingston Account Book lists Andris Richter as a tenant for various years between 1768 and 1782. Probably this Andreas is a son of Andreas Jr. or Johannes.

5. Tax lists of 1779 list Andreas Righter (this and the next two items may be the Andreis Rechter mentioned in the next paragraph).

6. John Curry's mill list of customers has several entries for Ander Righter under wheat, corn, barley, etc. in years 1783 and 1784.

7. Andreas Richter is a Livingston tenant in 1799.

8. Robert Livingston Estate lists Ander Righter as owing 50 cents in 1804.

How we make the genealogical connection from the Andreas Richter Jr., who came to America from Germany via England with his father John Andreas Richter, to the Andreis Rechter, shown living in Columbia County in the 1790 Federal Census, is not totally clear from the records I have seen. The simple fact that there were so many Andreas Richters along the Hudson River between 1710 and 1800 causes considerable confusion. Based on the records available and some speculation, the following seems a reasonable genealogical connection:

* This one is pure speculation: Johan Wilhelm Richter and his wife, Margaretha Kohl, had a son Andreas (Ander, Andris) Richter (Righter, Rechter) born in 1762 in Columbia County, New York.

* This last Andreis Rechter was born in 1762, married Genje Rockenfelder in 1781, had several children, and moved from Columbia County to Yates County with most of his children in 1817. When he arrived in Benton, Yates County, his name was Andrew Rector and his wife's name was Charity.
